Lia Lemon - Singer and Performer

Do you want a lead act, a singer-actor for your show, or a skilled background vocalist? Contact me! 

At the moment I'm the lead singer of the world music band Ela Ela, as well as the jazz band The Lemon Twisters, doing stylish vintage jazz, swing and bossa nova. You can hire us for any public or private event to make that special occasion perfect. 

 

This summer I sang with the violinist Filip Runesson and accordion player Johan Olsson (from the band Östblocket) and guitarist Peter Tegnér (from Tales) at the Goodnight Sun event in the Western Harbour, Malmö, playing soft greek ballads.

 

This year I've also worked as a singer-actor for Scandvision AB and had several concerts with Ela Ela at Palladium in Malmö, schools like Vikingaskolan in Lund and private events.

 

I've studied Folk Music and World Music as a vocalist at the Malmö Music Academy, started with classical schooling as a teenager in the Malmö Lyrical Ensemble, touring with musicals and performing My Fair Lady at the Malmö Festival in 1999. During my performing arts degree I next to acting focused on vocal training and built on my talent for the musical genre and pop ballads. In 2005 I composed my own singer song writing material and performed with the guitarist Thomas Persson, creating dreamy mood music with my dramatic lyrics. At that time I was offered a record deal with Fast Future Records and the composer John Cristiansson and we created the full length easy listening jazz album "Lia - Spaces in between" (link to iTunes) at Wonderland Studios. Followed by a tour to promote the album in Sweden and Australia. Later in 2006 I also worked with the superb jazz pianist Maria Mitina, developing further in the genre with concerts at the Tango Palace in Malmö and private gigs. I'm currently attending the Music Academy again for a few evening courses of jazz, oriental dancing and african drums and dancing, since I find it important to constantly develop as an artist.
